Shifen Waterfall (十分大瀑布 [Shífēn Dà Pùbù])

The Shifen Waterfall was mostly likely Taiwan’s most famous waterfall as it was seemingly very reachable from the east of Taipei as well as not being far from Keelung. It was a major waterfall…

Qingshan Waterfall (青山瀑布 [Qīngshān Pùbù])

The Qingshan Waterfall was a modestly-sized waterfall on the quieter north side of Yangmingshan, which was an area more known for hot springs than a nature hike like this. Our relatively …

Wufengchi Waterfall (五峰旗瀑布 [Wǔfēngqí Pùbù])

The Wufengchi Waterfall was a very well-known waterfall near the Jiaoxi Hot Springs. This was one waterfall that my Mom had visited before I went with her to Taiwan in 2016, and it seemed like…

Wulai Waterfall (烏來瀑布 [Wūlái Pùbù])

The Wulai Waterfall was possibly the best known waterfall in Taiwan besides the Shifen Waterfall. I suspect the reason for this was its relative close proximity to Taiwan’s capital city of…

Huangjin Waterfall (黃金瀑布 [Huángjīn Pùbù]; Golden Waterfall)

The Huangjin Waterfall had to have been one of the more unique and unusual waterfalls we had encountered in Taiwan. Not only did this waterfall have a pleasing size (it was wider than…

Xiao Wulai Waterfall (小烏來瀑布 [Xiǎowūlái Pùbù])

The Xiao Wulai Waterfall was kind of a strange experience for Mom and I because we were torn between how to experience this falls given the choice of options on offer…

Xinliao Waterfall (新寮瀑布 [Xīnliáo Pùbù])

The Xinliao Waterfall was our excuse to visit the southern end of Yilan County though our experience was more memorable due to the trail and the weather than the modestly-sized waterfall itself…

Chinglong Waterfall (青龍瀑布 [Qīnglóng Pùbù])

The Chinglong Waterfall was perhaps the waterfalling highlight of our short but very sweet visit to the Shanlinhsi Nature Park. This towering waterfall was where the Jiazouliao Stream…

Caihong Waterfall (彩虹瀑布 [Cǎihóng Pùbù]; Rainbow Waterfall)

The Caihong Waterfall was one that Mom and I had to work a bit for. While we technically only hiked around 1.6km round trip from the nearest parking area that we could find, the hike was steeply…

Fenghuang Waterfall (鳳凰瀑布 [Fènghuáng Pùbù])

The Fenghuang Waterfall felt like one of the more obscure waterfalls that we had visited in Taiwan. Maybe we got this vibe because Mom and I happened to encounter a couple of senior locals…

Songlong Rock Waterfall (松龍岩瀑布 [Sōnglóngyán Pùbù])

The Songlong Rock Waterfall was a waterfalling experience that had a lot going for it, especially since it was part of the Shanlinhsi Nature Park. For starters, visiting this waterfall also meant…

Dajin Waterfall (大津瀑布 [Dàjīn Pùbù])

The Dajin Waterfall was a pleasantly tall waterfall directly east of the busy cities of Kaohsiung and Tainan. The pretty typical tall and slender falls was where the Daguanliao Stream…

Qingrengu Waterfall (情人谷瀑布 [Qíngréngǔ Pùbù]; Lover’s Gorge Waterfall)

The Qingrengu Waterfall was a pair of modestly-sized waterfalls that introduced us to the kind of scenery that was on offer at the Maolin National Scenic Area. During my first time here…

Maolin Valley Waterfall (茂林谷瀑布 [Màolíngǔ Pùbù])

The Maolin Valley Waterfall was kind of our waterfalling excuse to do a trail that felt like a bit of an Indiana Jones-like adventure even though we were on a well-established trail in a scenic…

Kayoufeng Waterfall (卡悠峰瀑布 [Kǎyōufēng Pùbù]) or Neishi Waterfall (內獅瀑布 [Nèishī Pùbù])

The Kayoufeng Waterfall was probably my favorite waterfall of Southern Taiwan. As you can see from the photos on this page, the waterfall was big as it was said to be 40m tall…

Liangshan Waterfall (涼山瀑布 [Liángshān Pùbù])

The Liangshan Waterfall was really a series of three distinct waterfalls all on the Niujiaowan Stream. The view of the first waterfall was the most accessible and it had a modest 20m drop or so…

Luoshan Waterfall (羅山瀑布 [Luóshān Pùbù])

The Luoshan Waterfall was probably the most difficult to view of the waterfalls that we had seen in the east of Taiwan. In fact, the trail to get to the view you see in the picture at the top…

Fenghuang Waterfall (鳳凰瀑布 [Fènghuáng Pùbù])

The Fenghuang Waterfall (translated as the “Phoenix Waterfall”) was one of a handful of pretty straightforward waterfalls that we visited while self-touring the less-populated Eastern Taiwan…

Tiefen Waterfall (鐵汾瀑布 [Tiěfén Pùbù])

The Tiefen Waterfall was a seemingly secluded waterfall that we found to be one of the pleasant surprises along our tour of the less-dense Eastern Taiwan region. It appeared to have a pleasant…

Nanan Waterfall (南安瀑布 [Nánān Pùbù])

The Nanan Waterfall was probably the easiest of the waterfalls that we had visited in the east of Taiwan (or all of Taiwan for that matter). That was when we actually paid attention in the first…
